MPEG 2 Compression
on Jan 8, 2008 at 3:53:42 am

I need to create an MPEG2 file (from a quicktime) with audio embedded. I believe this means I need to mux the files? I have Compressor and Cleaner 6, and these don't seem to be able to do it. Does anyone know a good program for this and maybe the steps to do it? Would appreciate any help with this. Thanks.

Cleaner 6 will do the trick.

When you encode your MPEG-2 file, be sure to select Program stream and not elementary stream. Elementary will give you a separate audio and video file, whereas Program will give you one muxed file.

Good luck with your project,

Both cleaner 6 and compressor will do the job for you. Cleaner will probably take forever to do it however and the result may not work where you need it to.

Will I apply the "Program" setting in Compression as well?

So I tried it in Cleaner 6, with the Program stream and I'm getting a lot of compression artifacts (although they play randomly, not always in the same place). What settings should I use in Compressor?

Start with the 60 minute High Quality preset. This uses 2-pass VBR.

You could also try using MPEG STREAMCLIP. Its a free download off the interweb, and it moves much faster than cleaner in muxing your movies.

Thanks for your all your help guys. I finally ended up using Compressor to make the combined file (which wouldn't open in quicktime) and then MPEG Streamclip to mux the file into a viewable file. Don't know if this is the easiest way, but it worked.
